Professor Pruitt Comments for Media on Urban-Rural Differences in the Workplace

Professor Lisa R. Pruitt commented for an article in HR Hero on ways that employers can address urban-rural differences in their workforce. Pruitt addresses numerous challenges faced by jobseekers from rural environments, and notes that technology has the potential to lessen the urban-rural divide, enabling employers to achieve a more culturally diverse workforce.

Lisa R. Pruitt, Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor at UC Davis School of Law, is a scholar whose recent work explores the legal relevance of rural spatiality, including how it inflects dimensions of gender, race, and ethnicity.  Pruitt's work also considers rural-urban difference in transnational and international contexts.
